ELLA GLOBAL COMMUNITY
We are an international organization dedicated to improve the lives of queer women and nonbinary people from all backgrounds around the globe.
EGC works to provide a platform through which queer women and nonbinary people can feel inspired to strengthen their community and raise awareness about their identity and challenges faced as a result of discrimination and inequality.
In 2005, EGC was founded in Spain by Kristin Hansen, to create greater visibility of all queer women and nonbinary people of all backgrounds in order to enable them to identify and promote their specific needs.
Our organization is committed to respecting and promoting human rights, gender equality, diversity and inclusion.
An identity label that is non-specific towards a person’s sexual orientation; this could be lesbian, bisexual, asexual, sapiosexual, polysexual and so on.
Women + Nonbinary
Women: Cisgender and transgender women.
Nonbinary: An umbrella term for a person who identifies with or expresses a gender identity that is neither entirely male nor female: this includes androgynous, gender non-conforming, gender fluid, agender and genderqueer.
Race, generation, class, ability, body, faith and so on.
ELLA Global Community aims to be the largest community and network of queer women and nonbinary people in the world.
We connect queer women and nonbinary people of different backgrounds with similar mentalities in spaces that are both digital and face to face.
Our organization is dedicated to championing visibility and empowerment of queer women and nonbinary people through the power of community and innovation.
Our vision is a world where queer women and nonbinary people feel empowered to drive change and obtain full equality and acceptance in societies where discrimination against them still prevails.
We believe that amongst women and nonbinary people, we have to stand in solidarity with one another; listen to, cooperate and inspire each other, letting our differences enrich us.
We believe that everyone should be free to be true to themselves and have the right to assert their own sexual orientation, gender identity and expression.
Social attitudes and beliefs can only be changed by involving and educating all communities. Inclusivity, equality and respect of queer women and nonbinary people cannot be achieved by only preaching to the choir.
We believe that queer women and nonbinary people of all backgrounds should be welcomed, valued and respected. We know that in order to create an inclusive and safe space, we must also acknowledge, understand and embrace the intersections between these demographics.
No change has ever been achieved without the actions of a courageous few. As a minority often discriminated against for not being heterosexual and for many, not conforming to the gender assigned at their birth either, it takes tremendous courage to assert your sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, and take a stand on behalf of the LGBTTQIA+ community.
